The latest video from Jimmy Hapa showcased the Super Famicom game Kat’s Run. While I’m obviously a fan of Jimmy’s work, this video captured my attention for a few reasons.
First, it seemed like a Japanese-influenced mix between F-Zero and Super Mario Kart; That alone would be enough to get my attention, but unlike Mario Kart it also utilized the full screen area for racing.
Next, it made me wonder how it would look with the Mode 7 graphics rendered in HD! The game’s artwork looked like it would benefit from the HD treatment and damn was I right!:
Overall, another great video from Jimmy and a new game I’d like to give a try. Check out Jimmy’s video below and a short example of the “HD Mode 7” rendering below that.
